    Such a cute little truck! Your build is quite clean, I like the color, it makes the truck stand out! Very nice! Now when are these kits coming out, I want to build this!

    Very clean build! Nice work! You actually foiled the grill or you shot it with chrome paint? Very good work any way you look at it for sure!

    Day & Ross Freightliner FLD120 & 53' Great Dane
    Hi guys, this is my annual build, an Italeri FLD120 with a Moebius 53 foot Great Dane roll up door dry van. I have seen these D&R rigs go up and down the highways since I was a kid. In the early 90's I was struck by the styling of the FLD as being a breakthrough at the time, being very good looking for a fleet truck. So, since I'm familiar with the Day & Ross "Ship The Big Orange" paint scheme and still liking the FLD so much, I decided to make one of my own! So here is the breakdown, I started with the Italeri kit that has the silver truck box art with the cab side exhausts. The truck is box stock except for shortened rear hubs, "baby moon" button hub covers, Michelin drive tires from SIA A&N and a replaced the roof air deflector with a unit from a Revell of G Pete 359. Air brake hoses are on the truck and trailer too. The Moebius smoothside is also almost bone stock, except for the scratch built wheel hubs and KFS 1/24 scale wheels and Italeri tires to match. All wheels roll on the rig, that's just something I have to keep. No I don't play with them, it's just that I need to keep the "functionality" on all my builds. The decals are from Jerry at Modeltruckin'. I still have to go through some last details like the connecting hoses and wires to get the whole package finished though. Here are the pictures...

    I had that poster when I was a teen too! You hit this one right on the head, it's looking very much like the poster! Now all you need is the stainless reefer behind it! Brought me way back when for a minute! Thanks for sharing!

    looking really good up tp now! Ford sure made good looking big trucks at the day. Nice job Jac, you've outdone yourself with this one.

    I think the Revell snap trucks are some of the best kits to hack up! They're inexpensive to start with, they fit nicely, you don't have to fiddle with the hoods and cabs to align, they have pretty good parts (save the rear wheels and all tires...), that can be used on many other trucks... Good castings for the bodies and straight frames. Ok, i'll admit they have their shortcomings, no brake air chambers and no sunvisors... But man, look at what the guys here can do with 'em! Impressive!

    Just like the real one! I like everything about it, I'm surprised about the 2 piece Italeri tires in the back, they look at home on this truck!! Interesting build and a nice piece!

    I like your style... I like that Kenworth and the trailers, I already said good things about that Volvo...

    That red really makes it pop! Very nice! The grill and headlights are nicely trimmed in black, good detailing behind the cab... A good one!

    You could use some aluminum tubing as a sleeve to fit over the metal axle in the hub... I did that before and works nicely. You can find those at the hobby shop.
